To My WorldPulse Sisters!

Hi Sisters,
I know, I've been quiet for awhile. I've been extremely busy with school and with school papers that I have to research and write. I just want to say that I really enjoyed and missed so much the weekly assignments. Haha. That was the time when I spent all night reading posts and writing my assignments--sleeping at around 6 in the morning! I was so excited to receiving news and posts from friends. I still do. I get to read all your posts right in my inbox from VOF Fans and Cecile's poetry!

I am going to start writing again in my journal starting next week since I'm gonna be out of the country for a couple of days this week.

I am also happy that a lot more of our sisters have added me to their list of friends. I am so honored! I'm gonna add more people too in the coming days and keep the fire burning!

I will be back soon! Promise!

with love,
Katea

Inspiration

Dear Katea:

Inspiration is like a mouse: the more you try to catch it, the more work it will give you, but if you set up an intelligent trap and FORGET about it, you will catch the mouse easily.

Start writing. That is the right trap. As your fingers fly around the keyboard, inspiration finds its way to get you, and you will be soon be haunted by your own imagination and the beautiful images it will bring you.

Nice vacation!

We are hungry for your posts, so now get to your keyboard and show us your talent and love.

you inspire me

Can I just say, that I consider you as one of my teachers!!! Thank you so so much. I know, I just need a little push. My friend, who's like a big sister to me, always tell me jokingly if I want to be smacked for not writing! Hahaha.

I'm posting it now.

love always,
katea

Thank you dear Katea!

I am just honored you see me that way. You made my day. If there is only one woman in this world for whom I could make a difference in her life, no matter how small, I am fulfilling my dream. Imagine how I felt when you said I am something like a teacher, wow! That is really big for me.

Love you much,

Jackie

Missed you

Hooray, you are back! I wish you well with your studies as the year draws to a close and look forward to hearing from you soon. Best wishes....

Missed you too!

I've been thinking of what to write. Even in HK, I couldn't help but think of the next issue I want to talk and write about here on pulsewire. Hehe.

love,
katea

Yeah!

It is so good to hear from you! You are one of the people I especially wanted to post my picture for so my friends can see what I look like!

It is great to hear it was not a major illness that kept you away, that is a relief. I look forward to having you back, too!

Yeah for another year of school finished! That last push to get everything done can be so hard sometimes! You deserve a few days off to relax and rejuvenate and we will be eagerly waiting your return!

love, Maria

Maria!
Happy to finally see you!

I was just busy. I hardly get sick. The last time I was hospitalized, I was 2; and the last time I had fever and flu was in grade school. I was blessed with good health! My only problem is my dysmenorrhea but with medicine, I'm back to normal.

I don't know if I could call the short trip a relaxing one but maybe it was cos I stayed in my hotel room and slept there for the last two days in Hong Kong. Haha. I did go to Disneyland with my cousins and sister, and in an island where we had to take the cable car, which I loved cos we crossed several mountains! Anything that has to do with heights, even if it's scary, I really love. :)

I'm really thinking what to post next. hehe.

love,
katea

Heights? yikes!

I always hated heights and used to hate when the carnival came to town since I would have to at least ride the Ferris wheel to prove I was not a chicken and whoever I was with always managed to get it to swing a little with me trying not to look down!

I am glad you are doing good and look forward to another article! Sleeping sounds like the perfect vacation!

hugs and love,

Maria

Missed you too

Dear Katea,
I am not that much familiar with you as Maria but I know you and believe you too know me. Yeap , it has been a long time I am not hearing from you. I hope in the coming future, I will get to know you better. Best of luck for your result. I can understand you how much challenging it is as a student to contribute a time outside of study. But we will never get this network in our life if world pulse hadn't start this journey. I am glad to be the member of pulsewire community. I missed you and your post.
Hope to read your article in the future.
With Love

With Love and Regards
Sunita Basnet

Same here, Sunita

Dear Friend,
I am happy to hear from you Sunita. I do check your pulsewire site. :) Yes, I will surely be posting my journals in the coming weeks, and I have just started gaining the momentum. The energy from this site is really good and encouraging and I am so inspired everytime I hear from sister-friends like you.

Writing for and on this site is a relaxing activity for me, and reading from friends doubles the that good feeling!

We will keep in touch.

love,
Katea

More from me

Tina,
I just missed everyone so much too. Im really really excited that I'm back. I wanted to write when I was in HK but their internet was quite expensive and my sister's phone could not connect to the wifi except when we were at the airport on our way back, I was able to check my emails. I was thrilled to see lots of worldpulse emails in my inbox. Hehe.

Before this week ends, I'd definitely have something posted.

I'm looking forward to reading all the posts too.

love,
katea

Katea,

Glad to have you back

Friend, I think it is the real world. Sometimes we have to leave something to get something.
So don't worry. As we all get together in a bondm, that's why we can't stay away from each other.

It's my believe that we are together and we will be together forever.
